Living Wage Free Pop-up Gallery Art, Lit Mini-Gala, & Live Music
February 10 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The San Francisco Living Wage Coalition is happy to have husband and wife Joe Berry, a retired labor educator, history teacher and union organizer/staffer, and Helena Worthen, a writer and activist this Saturday, February 10th from 2:00-4:00pm for a book reading and signing! FREE ADMISSION!
Berry’s, “Reclaiming the Ivory Tower: Organizing Adjuncts to Change Higher Education,” describes the political-economic situation of the “new majority” of college teachers and outlines organizing strategies to improve pay, job security and working conditions of part-time faculty. Along with readings from her poetry, Worthen will also be reading from her book, “What Did you Learn at Work Today?” explains how collective learning takes place in the midst of conflict. The book is based on her years of experience as a labor educator and is intended for use by organizers and activists.
In addition to the book reading and signing, we will be having a silent auction on some gorgeous paintings, drawings, and photographs by local artists such as Michelle Acosta, Carina Lomeli, Ana Colomo, Andrea Valencia, Txutxo Perez, Doug Minkler, Debra Walker, Rodger Scott, John Weaver, Ramon Deanda, Sara Thustra, Romeo Osorio, David Duckworth, Nanci Reese, and Adriana Madrigal.
While listening to LIVE music by Diego Sardaneta, come by to learn and be apart of some powerful activism!
This event will be taking place on the third floor of the Redstone Labor Temple located at 2940 – 16th Street #301, San Francisco. (between Mission and South Van Ness)
Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
